I have a veteran friend whose antenna was destroyed by winds. I dont use my Winegard antenna and was wondering if I could disconnect from my trailer and just hook his coax straight from his TV into it , will that work. His trailer is an old one so it's not like mine

There likely is a "pre-amp" involved in the original setup.
Might work OK, and might not.

You can not come straight off the antenna into the TV. You will have to connect to the wall plate inside your RV. The antenna has an amplifier in the head that needs power that comes from the wall plate.

If you friend had a Winegard Antenna and he has the Interior Booster wall plate, you can run a Coax from YOUR Batwing to the Cable on top his RV. Connect the coax wires together and he will use his booster to power your antenna, which will feed his TV. Doug

NOT all Winegard bat wing antennas have amplifiers in them. A lot of trailers have the NON_amplifies antenna installed. You will get very poor reception when using an amplified antenna with out the power inserter (wall plate).
